I've been running PL IONS MC w/AKA CC and they feel almost too stiff for such a light buggy w/very little sidewall. I put the open cell that come w/the Panther super soft tires w/o glue and they feel great in my hand..
Me. Still on open cell.
My local track is a tight hard packed dirt track. I've used AKA closed cells, and I find them a tad too stiff.

So over all I see everybody is running 20-22 with a 7.5 motor
I am running an older novak GTB with no cut off.
What are the run times with that gearing?
anybody looked into that yet

some dont like the battery lay out but its saddle so with todays lipos thats no issue.
Some parts are weak read back through the forum.
I have not been able to track mine yet just have it running and tested the new 7.5 motor in the shop.
It drifts awesome on the concrete
